As you observe the “Student Driver” sign on the back of the driver education car, please show some empathy and understanding. These novice drivers haven’t fully developed their skills and may inadvertently make some questionable decisions. Decisions such as signaling left and turning right, or making a not-so-smooth lane change, or just getting the brake and accelerator mixed up. The errors in judgment will be corrected with time and practice.
Unfortunately, some of the other drivers on the roadway refuse to accept any mistake from a beginning student driver. They express their dissatisfaction by angrily honking, yelling or issuing a “one-finger-salute.” This form of road rage is certainly uncalled for and unfortunately reveals a great deal about the personal frustration that exists within those types of drivers.
We have all experienced the trials and tribulations of learning how to drive. Thus, your understanding and empathy, for each student driver while they are trying to develop their driving skills, would be greatly appreciated.
